I'm sad to say we lost one of our very own. Scott Wright from Parker, Colorado, also known to so many of us as "powerlube" passed away 2 days ago.

Those who knew Scott knew he was a certified petro enthusiast, especially when it came to the Powerlube, Powerine, and Bearcat brands. He was instrumental in bringing the Powerlube history to this site many years ago and also sponsored monthly forums on the various Colorado brands. He was always active in the petro community despite the medical issues he continually faced over the past several years. He was a great friend to me! Scott and I shared a booth and lodging at Iowa Gas (in da' shade) for many years until he was no longer capable of making the drive to Iowa. We spoke just a few weeks ago about what else....signs! He was a fantastic family man who loved God and always put his family and his faith above all. He leaves behind his wife and two teenage children.

There is a Celebration of Life service for Scott on Nov 10th at Crossroads Church in Parker, Colorado at 2PM for family and friends who can attend. God Bless Powerlube....you'll be missed!

Please feel free to share any stories or memories of Scott below and I'll be sure to get them to his family.

Scott was one of the first people that I met in this hobby. Got some great pieces from him and still have them. We are sorry about his passing.

God Bless him and his family...

How very sad. Scott was so knowledgeable and willing to share with other collectors. Passing way too young with a beautiful family. Our prayers for his family and all who knew him as a friend.

Didn't know him well but bought a sign from him a couple of months ago and had a few great conversations with him. What a nice guy with an obvious passion for the hobby. Condolences to his family.

Very sad to hear. I had a bunch of great transactions with Scott over the years. My big Powerlube remains one of my favorites. He was a class guy and will be missed. My heartfelt condolences to his family and close friends. R.I.P.
